About the job

About MetaMask

Weโ€™re building for a future where the internet and world economy empowers people through interactions based on consent, privacy, and free association. Where both communities and individuals flourish. To accomplish that, weโ€™re working hard to make web3 accessible for everyone. Originally a humble key manager, today MetaMask serves over 20 million monthly active users as a decentralized application development platform, an aggregator of decentralized cryptocurrency exchanges, and a decentralized identity manager.

About MetaMask Snaps

In January 2022, MetaMask launched the developer release of our Snaps platform. Snaps is a system that allows anyone to safely expand the capabilities of MetaMask. A "snap" is a JavaScript and/or WebAssembly program that we run in an isolated environment that can customize the wallet experience. For example, a snap can add new APIs to MetaMask, add support for different blockchain protocols, or modify existing functionality using internal APIs. Snaps is a new way to create web3 end user experiences, by modifying MetaMask in ways that were impossible before.

The first prominent Snap released for MetaMask enabled use of Filecoin applications through MetaMask. You can learn more about that in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14uEYdgyEr8

Over time, MetaMask will use this to support different blockchains and other decentralized protocols, novel kinds of cryptography, novel kinds of crypto assets, UI customization, smart contract wallets, and a countless number of other features.

About The Role

We are currently looking for React Native engineers to join our Snaps Platform team.
